These sentence activities are a fun way for students to develop their descriptive writing skills. Students are given a sentence which they rewrite. They are given a word bank of words for each sentence that they might find helpful when they do this, however they also use words that they personally know and want to use.
In the handout ‘how do I expand a sentence?’ students learn some strategies for rewriting a sentence with more descriptive language. In the introduction handout they learn that descriptive language helps us tell a story, and they are introduced to the idea of questioning a sentence to see what they can add to it.
This package can also be bound into a student half-page sized booklet with the two handouts at the beginning, followed by their rewritten sentences. There is a cover page provided for if you choose to create a booklet.
Handout #1- descriptive language to tell a story
Handout #2- how to expand a sentence
20 expanding sentence worksheets (half page sized)
